Sacramento detectives arrest homicide suspect in 23-year-old cold case
Updated at 10:17PM, February 7, 2020



SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Sacramento detectives made an arrest Thursday in a decades-old homicide case.

The Sacramento Police Department reports 58-year-old Irvin Parnell was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail and faces homicide charges after the 1996 killing of 33-year-old Linda Garcia.

More than 20 years ago, Garcia was found dead in her Massie Court hotel room. Investigators say she died from blunt force trauma.

Parnell was already in custody for charges unrelated to the homicide case when cold case detectives uncovered new information about Garcia’s death.

DNA Leads To Arrest Of Man Wanted In 2004 Sex Assault At Mountain View Hotel

February 15, 2020 at 11:30 pm





Mountain View (KPIX) – A man suspected in sexual assault case first reported to police 15 years ago, is behind bars after DNA evidence put investigators on his trail.

At the time of his arrest, Van Overton, Jr. was not shying away from attention. He was very involved in his community in Albuquerque as a child advocate, spoke at a TEDx event last year, and was honored by the city as volunteer of the year

On Friday, the 45-year-old became a suspect, after authorities in Albuquerque were able to test a rape kit that sat in a backlog for more than 20 years.

“They zeroed in on Mr. Overton and it matched exactly from these two alleged rapes,” said Gilbert Gallegos with the Albuquerque Police Department.

Albuquerque Police say the alleged rape happened back in 1997. Overton was in his early 20s. In a police report, a woman claims he asked her to step outside with him at a party, and then sexually assaulted her.

“Once we outsourced that, got the results back, detectives started looking for that and they discovered that there had been a hit on that case of another rape in 2004 in California,” said Gallegos.

Mountain View police say a woman, who was 42 at the time, told police a suspect broke into her motel room and sexually assaulted her for nearly half an hour before leaving. DNA evidence was collected from her pillow.

“APD detectives started working immediately with the Mountain View police to try to piece together exactly who the perpetrator might be,” Gallegos said.

1998 sexual assault cold case solved with blood sample from suspect’s autopsy
News

The suspect died in 2014, but his fingerprint and blood sample matched DNA collected in 1998



Updated: Feb 21, 2020 / 07:46 PM EST


FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WDVM) — Police say their cold case team has solved a 1998 sexual assault case by matching a blood sample collected from the suspect’s autopsy with DNA from the scene.

On August 17, 1998, a man posing as an exterminator forced entry to a 32-year-old woman’s apartment and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint. This happened in the 7200 block of Parkwood Court in Falls Church, Virginia, according to the Fairfax County Police Department. The victim was able to break free from the suspect and escaped by jumping from her second-story balcony.

Although police said they entered the DNA and fingerprints into a nationwide database at the time, no match came up. In 2019, detectives from the Major Crimes Bureau’s Cold Case Squad resubmitted the evidence collected in 1998.

There was a match.

Police said there was a fingerprint match with Juan Johnson, who died in 2014 at age 48. For further confirmation, the Virginia Department of Forensic Science examined Johnson’s blood sample, which was on file in Baltimore, Maryland from his autopsy. It also matched the DNA evidence.

Man linked to 8 cold case rapes spanning 2 decades arrested



Updated: March 4, 2020 - 3:41 PM

CONYERS, Ga. — A man linked to eight sexual assault cold cases has been arrested, police said Wednesday.

Wesley Cooley, 58, was arrested near his Conyers home Feb. 24 on charges he raped a women in Tucker on Northlake Parkway in 2017.

DNA evidence from that case links the same attacker to seven other unsolved sexual assault cases in metro Atlanta dating back to 1999, officials say.


The victims range in age from 15 to 38 years old. Four of the crimes happened in DeKalb County, two in metro Atlanta and one in Conyers, according to the DeKalb County district attorney.

“A dangerous predator whom we believe has been terrorizing women for at least two decades is off the street,” said District Attorney Sherry Boston. “This is a huge moment for the victims on whose behalf we advocate. We will continue to fight for them to seek answers and justice, no matter how long it takes.”

Cooley has been charged with felony rape in connection with the Conyers case. He faces separate charges of criminal attempt to commit a felony in connection with an attempted sexual assault that also happened in 2017.

Las Vegas police make arrest in 2008 cold-case slaying



Thursday, March 26, 2020 | 7 p.m.

More than a decade after a man turned up dead, strangled and beat to death, DNA evidence led detectives to his alleged killer, according to Metro Police.

Richard Cline's 2008 slaying had gone unsolved, its leads exhausted, until cold case investigators took another look and got a hit after they resubmitted DNA for testing in November.

The results gave them a name: Quincy Cook, 44. The suspect, who was already being held at the Clark County Detention Center on unrelated charges, was rebooked Tuesday on one count each of murder and burglary, jail logs show.

Detectives were dispatched to a suspicious death call on Dec. 12, 2008, in the 5800 block of West Harmon Avenue, near Jones Boulevard, police said.

Eight days later, an autopsy and investigation confirmed that the death had in fact been a homicide: Cline had struggled with someone, that his neck was compressed and that he'd suffered "blunt force trauma."
